Teach your kids to express thanks for anything and everything...

This is a spiritual refining process,
with glory just around the corner.
~ 1 Peter 4:12, 13 MSG

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'The Journey'


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

We have all heard the story of the Exodus. But, do we really know what the Exodus story is about? The Journey is not a story about Moses. It is not a story about a people’s journey through the wilderness to their Promised Land. Read The Journey and understand it in the way God wanted you to know it: a story about you and about me; and the problems we face every day. The Journey is about your unpaid bills. It is about your struggling business. It is about the pay raise you’ve been wanting. It is about the difficulties you’ve been having with your family. After reading The Journey, you may find yourself with a different viewpoint on life.

FREE Audiobook: Every Body Matters

FREE Christian Audiobook of the Month 


Expires May 31st, 2013
Few pastors or Christian writers have dared to approach the subject of how proper eating and an active lifestyle can affect how we serve God. Author Gary Thomas does just that. And he reaches all the way back to the apostle Paul, who wrote that we need to prime our bodies to become, "an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work." To illustrate the body/soul correlation, Thomas presents engaging and diverse stories that include a young mom who got fit through volleyball and reaped spiritual rewards in her marriage, a 300-pound pastor who realized his obesity was eroding his ministry impact, and a woman who gained the spiritual strength to survive a contentious divorce by training for a marathon. In every instance, Thomas makes a direct connection between the physical challenge and its spiritual consequence. This book is a must read for anyone seeking new and compelling motivation for strengthening their bodies and fortifying their souls.

Let Me Walk Upon the Waters...Wherever You Would Call Me


You call me out upon the waters.
The Great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find you in the mystery;
In oceans deep my faith will stand.

So I will call upon your name
And keep my eyes above the waves.
When oceans rise my soul
Will rest in your embrace,
For I am yours and you are mine.

Your Grace abounds in the deepest waters.
Your Sovereign hand will be my guide.
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me;
You've never failed
And you won't stop now.

So I will call upon your name
And keep my eyes above the waves.
When oceans rise my soul
Will rest in your embrace,
For I am yours and you are mine.

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders.
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever you would call me.
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my saviour.


I will call upon your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in your embrace
I am yours and you are mine.

God the Father - Four Week Mini Bible Study

Part One: The Holy Trinity Parenting Series

God the Father is very much misunderstood. There is a lot of anger, bitterness, and hatred towards Him. Often we tend to embrace the grace given to us by Jesus, and the power given to us by the Holy Spirit, but we reject the unconditional love given to us by the Father.

This book is not a play by play of how to parent your children. Written from a mom living in the trenches of raising three beautiful, spirited children, this book reflects on the lessons taught about God the Father through those tough moments of discipline and confusion in this mother's life.

Now you can journey along this path with her and hopefully as you do your perspective of the God the Father will be renewed, and you will begin to see the lessons given to you by God through parenting.

FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

In this powerful and deeply vulnerable book, Beth Redman writes to pass along a message that changed her life—that the God who made us also understands us intimately. He hears our cries and reaches out in love to help us and fight for us. He’s always at work shaping our character. And no matter what others do, He will never, ever leave or forget us. Drawing on Scripture and her own experience, Redman invites us to explore the revolutionary implications of being loved by a God who knows our name. And she invites us to call on His name as well—to respond to His heart and love Him as He has loved us from the beginning.

FREE Kindle Edition ~ 'Body Image Lies Women Believe: And the Truth of Christ That Sets Them Free'

Thursday, May 09, 2013


FREE Kindle Edition

* Limited Time Offer

Body Image Lies Women Believe
Are you insecure about your looks?
Have you ever compared yourself to someone else and found yourself wanting?
Do complements or put downs determine the image you have of your beauty?
Real Stories of Overcoming Body Image Lies Women Believe with God's Truth

Throughout this book, Christian women share their stories of how they have struggled with body image lies and a distorted view of themselves. However, each of their stories also contains hope - the hope of replacing these lies with God's truth. Our prayer for you is that you find encouragement within these pages and allow Christ to transform you with His truth.

We Are Each Created Unique

God has created each one of us with unique abilities, unique talents and a unique personality. As women we are influencers and God has given us that role and our beauty to share with others. Yet so often we settle for a counterfeit. The enemy has counterfeited our idea of beauty, convincing us to share our beauty with the world in a distorted way. Today that often means that we see our beauty as what we look like on the outside.
